Avoid a pack of lies like rabid hounds,
And seek all truth among the wolves of life;
Dishonesty first stalks and then surrounds,
So kill it with the facts just like a knife.
Injustice is a bully bound with hate
But fairness is a friend that’s true and strong;
Don’t let corruption fight and desecrate,
Let authenticity make right from wrong.
Unsightly things dig in just like a briar
But loveliness caresses heart and mind.
The wrong influence rakes and stabs like wire
A good report from friends is smooth and kind.
If there be any virtue, any praise,
Just think upon these things and all their ways.
Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest,
whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure,
whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report;
if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise,
think on these things.
Philippians 4:8 KJV
